To be able to build a photography website by yourself you wont need anything else then a computer and about 30 minutes of time to invest in building your website.
Now I will show you in steps how to get started and how little it actually requires from you to build your own photography website. There are other ways of course but this is what I did when I built my first photography website. And since it worked for me I thought I would share it with you.
Step 1. OK so step one is pictures. You need to have photos to build a photography website right? So make sure you have at least a few pictures already and put them all on your computer, so that you can put them on your website.
Step 2. OK, step 2 is… find a guide on how to build a website or how to build a photography website. Of course it’s better if you find a guide on how to build a photography website since you will get much more specific information. But a guide on how to build just a website works fine too. There are a few good ones, but I found a pretty good one that you can check out. You can see the web address below.
Step 3. Next you should read the guide you have chosen, it doesn’t have to be the guide I suggested but some guide. It’s very important that you read the whole guide your using and follow all the instructions given in the guide. If you skips some parts or don’t follow the directions given in the guide your using… it often ends with you not having a website at the end.
Step 4. And now when you have read the guide, followed all the instructions and maybe watched a few videos if the guide you read contained videos. Your new photography website should be built.
Of course not every guide works or is so easy to use that you can build a website without any computer skills but I know that there are a few guides at least. Some cost a little and some are free but the one I used was free, so that was a great bonus for me since I didn’t have a lot of money when I built my first website.
